Freemasonry is said to be a "peculiar system of morality". It does not profess to teach mere human morality because all human morality is of itself imperfect. 
Instead the morality of Freemasonry is founded on the Divine law of the Great Architect of the Universe and is designed to make good men better. This betterment is achieved by an ongoing process of refinement.
The basis of Freemasonry is the work ethic and it is by fruitful deeds that Freemasons should be recognized as such. However, these deeds should not be solely confined to Masonic endeavors, but rather demonstrated throughout one's daily life, so that the wider world in which we live may be made better as a result.
Therefore, it is incumbent upon each of us to find worthy candidates who may be made even better by initiation into the practices of both the Blue Lodge and the Scottish Rite. Let each of us pledge to bring in at least one worthy and well-qualified member this year. Have you found your candidate yet?
